Jackets and Bloomers, lather, rinse, repeat.

Busy busy week with photo day TOMORROW. (Eep!!)

The to-do list is rapidly shrinking, with many thanks to my tireless friend Deb.  (THANK YOU!!)

The munchins have bloomers, the guards have tunics, the lullaby ALMOST has tutus. zooom!!

Here are some cute goodies for you to see. 

The Great and Powerful Oz Jacket:

There are six BIG silver buttons that go down that center placket....3 on each side.  :)  I need to see her in it before I can place them, though. 
Here's the back:
It's hard to see in the photo, but the white fabric is actually silk suiting with silver threads running through it.  It's BEAUTIFUL fabric that I got a majorly good deal on.  On which I appliqued Lycra...and ric rac.  I have a strange job.  lol

And here is the Munchkin Mayor!

There are also six BIG buttons waiting to go down the center front of this jacket.  They're green, dk blue and lt blue, three on each side.  :)  I think that little repetitions of details like that really help a show feel cohesive.

Here's the back:
 The tails split down the back up to the high waist. The bloomers are VERY high waisted and held up with elastic suspenders under the jacket.  That should keep us from having any problems with jacket/pants gaposis.  (The technical term for tummy hang-outage.)

And just for a "What on earth was I thinking" moment....THIS was the original fabric I had for this costume:

Yeah....I don't know either.  o.O  It doesn't go with the rest of the munchkin scene at ALL.  Deb and I made a fast dash to the fabric store, found the blue/green plaid, and it all instantly fell into place.  SO much happier with the new fabric. 

Picture day is tomorrow.  (Did I mention that?  I'm kind of obsessing.)  That means I SHOULD have some new things to show you.  If I don't, I'm in trouble. lol
